Chellah Necropolis in Morocco

Chellah Necropolis in Morocco is located in Rabat. Inhabited by Phoenicians and Romans, the site was transformed into a royal cemetery by the Almohad dynasty in the mid-12th century. The Marinids created the necropolis in the late 13th century. There they built a mosque and a madrasa, in addition to other support buildings. The site suffered considerable damage due to the 1755 earthquake.
